At Teddy Bear Connection, children’s imaginations run wild as they dream up stuffed-animal friends and customize them with clothes and a full boutique of colorful accessories. After they pick out a bear, kitten, zebra, or other plush friend, they hand their future friend over to a staff member, who plumps the animal with fluff, maximizing cuddliness but minimizing its ability to slip under doors and raid the cookie jar. Animals leave the store as is or can peruse walls hung with outfits and shoes for any occasion, real or imagined, with their owner. Creators can add a song or sound to play when their stuffed animal is squeezed, or record their own 10-second theme song, catch phrase, or campaign slogan.
